Who the hell cares if his name is released? Hiding it is preposterous. I thought I heard hes in the private sector now anyway.
It’s important because if his name is on officially released transcripts, then he has officially been ‘outed’. IE, there is no more argument that his identity is still a secret.
Nothing in the transcript indicates that he's the whistle blower.
They just asked Taylor if he had met this individual.
No; he did not go back to the private sector; he left the NSC (National Security Council) after unspecified ‘death threats’; and went back to “his agency” as the MSM wrote; which means the CIA.
